Speakers: Representing multi-faith communities, professionals, third sector organisations, academics and politicians, our speakers will give multi-dimensional perspectives on the occurrence of DVA in faith communities.  There will be in depth insight on the needs of adult and child victims in faith communities; and a bold emphasis on how to facilitate radical work with perpetrators of DVA, given that they are the key agents of DVA.

Our speakers include Right Reverend Christopher Cocksworth – Bishop Of Coventry, Imam Abdullah Hasan – Co-Founder, Imams Against Domestic Abuse, Kudakwashe Nyakudya – Founder Director, Kahrmel Wellness, Shahin Ashraf – National Co-ordinator & National Lead On Female Genital Mutilation, Muslim Women’s Network, and Dr Lisa Oakley – Expert On Spiritual Abuse, Manchester Metropolitan University.  Full list of speakers …

Using in depth research and experiences shared by survivors, conference topics will examine some aspects of DVA we have come across in faith communities. These include – Spiritual Abuse; The Experiences Of Adult & Child Victims In Court Proceedings; The Impact Of DVA On Children & Adolescents; Forced Marriage; The Complex Dynamics In Faith Communities; The Behavioural Patterns Of Perpetrators; Criminal Law & Probation; Female Genital Mutilation; and The complete Restoration Of Adult & Child Victims.

We warmly invite you to join us at this event, that will incredibly transform your understand on DVA, and empower you to take the appropriate action in faith communities – at all times. We strongly encourage you to attend the full conference for maximum benefit. Book your place and invite others to join you.
